The first softcover edition of Usagi Yojimbo Book 3: The Wanderer's Road came out in 1989. Now, 25 years later, the 7th printing is soon to hit shelves. This is an essential volume of Stan Sakai's rabbit ronin saga, featuring the debut of Usagi's lizard pal Spot, the return of the Blind Swordspig, the introduction of the terrifying Jei (seen above), a hat-tip to Groo co-starring the mercenary Gen, deepening feudal intrigue featuring Tomoe and the Neko Ninja, and the first Ninja Turtle crossover story!

We're taking pre-orders now for this brand-new printing which hits shelves in April.

All right all you Baggers and Baggettes, cast your gaze upon an advance copy of Buddy Buys a Dump, the long-awaited new collection in the saga of Buddy Bradley and his familial unit from the pages of Hate. Watch Buddy adjust to fatherhood, undergo some cosmetic changes, start a new business venture, cope with some skeletons in the closet, and return to Seattle to meet Lisa's parents for the first time. Lisa gets her own spotlight, joining a band and having a racy misadventure. And the story is wrapped up with an all-new chapter that could only be titled "Fuck It"! All from the pen of the inimitable Peter Bagge, in full color thanks to the missus, Joanne.

The book will be hitting shelves in a couple months or so; you can read a free excerpt and pre-order your copy right here.

Bomb Run and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library) by John Severin - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Will ElderpreviewsJohn SeverinHarvey KurtzmanEC ComicsComing Attractions 13 Feb 2014 12:50 PM

Harvey Kurtzman's taut, humanistic scripts and John Severin's gritty, detailed artwork (inked with preternatural precision, usually by Will Elder) combined to make some of the finest war stories ever told in any medium in the pages of EC Comics. Bomb Run and Other Stories collects all of this essential work in one hardcover volume for the first time.

Our downloadable excerpt comes complete with the Table of Contents and three full stories: the centuries-spanning "How They Die!"; the cautionary WWII tale "Weak Link!"; and the high-flying, Greek myth-inspired title story. Originally on the calendar for July, we wrapped this one a little early, so it might move up on the schedule. Either way, you can pre-order your copy right now and be among the first to get a copy (and combine it with the upcoming Joe Orlando volume Judgment Day for 20% savings!).

The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsConor StechschulteComing Attractions 10 Feb 2014 12:10 PM

The Amateurs, the debut graphic novella by Conor Stechschulte, is at the printer for release this spring. One part Samuel Beckett, one part Laurel and Hardy, one part Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this is a story of escalating madness, mystery, slapstick, and violence unlike any you've read before.

Our downloadable 8-page preview includes the horrifying prologue and introduces Jim and Winston, our protagonists who, after a strange night of sickness, arrive at work and are baffled to find that their butcher shop is as empty as their minds are of how to do their job. Pre-order now and get the rest of the story in May.

Here's a clearer view of the box art for The EC Comics Slipcase Vol. 1, coming in April, featuring the artwork of Jack DavisHarvey KurtzmanAl Williamson, and Wallace Wood on the outside and their respective EC Comics Library volumes inside. Nice, right? That's gold ink on there, as befitting the quality of the material inside and the luster of our unique and impeccable presentation.

For those of you who plan on replacing your standalone copies of each book with the box set (since we're not able to offer empty boxes), might we suggest "paying it forward" by donating your duplicate books to a good cause such as your local library, or passing them along as gifts? Share the EC love!

Heroes of the Comics by Drew Friedman - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jack KirbyDrew FriedmanComing Attractions 30 Jan 2014 1:42 PM

Heroes of the Comics by Drew Friedman

In Drew's own words:

"This is the cover to my upcoming book HEROES of THE COMICS, designed by the great Jesse Marinoff Reyes. The book comes out in early July and officially debuts at the San Diego Comic Con."

We got a great response to the preliminary cover we showed with Drew's portrait of Siegel & Shuster, but we went with the King, and for good reason, as you can see. Don't worry, Jerry & Joe are still inside the book, along with dozens and dozens more of the titans and pioneers of American comics, all gorgeously and expressively rendered, and accompanied by loving and informative essays by Drew. No comics lover's coffee table will be complete without this beautiful, oversized hardcover.

Be among the first to get a copy by pre-ordering today!
